    Best frame or mini pump for a mountain bike.

    I heard different ones.My wife asked me why I wanted one,I told her I'd rather silly packing a floor model pump with me. I've considered getting a Co2 pump but don't know how good they are. I guess you don't need a big pump since it's 60 lbs pressure. What are some good choices?

    I bought the Topeak Morph G pump and really like it. It has a pretty good gauge on it, and the handle and bottom fold so you can use it as a floor pump for easier pumping.

    One other thing I forgot to mention is that the Topeak Morph G is easy to switch from Presta to Schrader valve types. This was very handy for me when a bike I rented in Mexico had one of each type!

    +1 .

    The Topeak is probably the most recommended on the Commuting and Touring forum.

    P.S.: If you don't care about having a gauge, check out the Topeak Pocket Rocket -- pretty cool that it can share mounts with a bottle cage. I'm probably going to get one of these for the bike that I use to ride with my kids, since I don't really have to have a gauge for those lower pressure tires.

    I would look at the 2nd wind pumps, best of both worlds.. CO2 and small pump if needed.. They work great, have them on all my bikes.. You can aluminum or carbon finish and standard or mini size.. They have a new mountain version but I have never used that model.

    I use the Topeak Road Morph on my road bikes. For the mountain bike, I use the Turbo Morph. The Turbo Morph is essentially a Road Morph with a slightly wider body and a different gauge. In theory, the wider body moves more air and you'll inflate high-volume MTB tires a bit quicker than you would with the Road Morph...
